I attended the 71st Chunichi Award in Agriculture presentation ceremony held in Nagoya. I won the award for excellence for our organic tea farming and activities involving local and young people.
I could have never done these without help from people around me – my family, my dog, my friends who worked together in the organic tea farm and joined our events, our customers who supported us, students and young people who helped our work, farmers and friends overseas, thanks you so much! Thanks to all of your help, our work has been officially recognized.
The role of agriculture is very important in the current society. I will work harder to make teas to warm the heart as well as the body. And eventually, as we work hard on farming, I would like to make local community that saves humanity.
